Journals from Firenze
These are really, really nice. Yes, they're also expensive.
But, you know -- what does it cost you to write a novel? Or a travel journal for your great grandchildren? Lots of hours. It's a big number.
Not writing is even more expensive: lost ideas, lost opportunities, lost chances.
So, if really nice Italian leather, spare-no-expensive top-quality binding, and extravagantly fine paper help you actually sit down and write it down, well, go for it.
